My eldest boy and I decided to bowhunt Agagia, in Namibia, this last June. It is an experience him and I will never forget. All I have to do now to put a smile on his face is say "Namibia" or "Agagia".

We were there for a week and enjoyed every second of it. The hospitality of Tielman and Carin Neethling was great and the wildlife was amazing.

I managed to harvest a Gemsbok (37inch cow), a Kudu (47.5 inch ) and a few Warthogs and Jett managed to harvest his first Warthog.( not bad for a 8 year old )

I can highly recommend bowhunting Namibia with Agagia.

thanks for posting.
i really hope to do that sometime - as well as spending a bit of time
visiting the Himba people in N. Namibia.

The problem with this forum - is that too many things are going onto my "bucket list".
Hahahahha!!!

How much does it cost to hunt antelope in Namibia?

TimRumble - Congratulations on a super hunt. To be able to share this adventure with your son is astounding. Love the video.

Noticed the penetration on the red hartebeest wasn't very deep. Open on impact broadhead?

Thank you.

Yes Stretch, the broadhead was a Rage Chisel tip.The shot placement was bad and the arrow stopped up against the bone. A few inches the the rear or down and it would have been all over, but we did not manage to recover this one. You win some, you lose some.

Upepo, you can get a price list from Agagia's website or email Carin for a price list. All the details are on their website.

That's how the hit appears in the video. A little forward, think you hit the leg bone. On my Africa hunt I shot high on one animal (shoulder) and did not penatrate well with a cut-on-impact fixed blade. Know how you feel. On the other hand, you had a great hunt, shot some super animals, and were able to share your son's first kill with him. Doesn't get any better than that. Congratulation's again.

Hunting at Agagia

Thank you for posting your hunt report, video and pictures.

I am on the process of working out the cost at Agagia I have seen some good videos of the outfit can I get some more information about them who has hunted there I am a bowhunter,
I was lead down the wrong track this year by mislead out fit who claimed to be for bowhunting ended up the distance at the water holes were too far for a bow only manage to bag 4 animals but not the ones I went to get.

Sorry to hear that you felt misled.
(Please post a hunt report so others can learn)

There are good outfitters that understand bow hunting.
Ask them more direct questions on bow hunting as you research your next hunt Bow hunt.
Get pictures.
References from Bow hunters.

Noting things like the OP's Equipment info is a start.
APA Mamba M7 80#
Black Eagle Arrows Carnivore, Zombie Slayer 300s
Helix/Rage/Muzzy 125grn Broadheads

Good luck.

Agagia is definately set up for bow hunting. We had days where we had animals 3 meters away from the hide infront of the shooting window.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
